Maria De Los Angeles
María T. is a 52-year-old single merchant, saying she "buys and sells typical clothing." She lives with her three children, and they all make a living in the same trade. María has 12 years experience selling clothes from her home in Paraje Paxocol del Cantón Paquí, department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. Currently the demand from her clientele is growing, but with the economic conditions she's unable to increase her capital, which is why she has turned to Kiva partner Asociación ASDIR. She is requesting a loan to purchase raw materials for her business and in this way increase her sales. She's also hoping to make headway for her children and improve their living conditions.
